Why a river trip? One of the reasons is the ability to make lifelong friends in a matter of days, you will meet people who are in the same boat as you are, both literally and figuratively. Being a guide I see people from all over the world come together and become a close knit group in only a matter of days and I get to be a part of those groups. I am still in contact with people who came with me on a river trip 3 years ago. I don’t know of any other vacation where that would be possible. While you are making new friends you are in some of the most pristine wilderness in the World. The views and sights in are stunning, only a select few people in the World get to see this amazing perspective from the bottom of the canyon.
Once you are on the river you might discover that you may be out of your comfort zone, but guess what? Chances are those new friends of yours are too. The best way to feel comfortable when you are out of your comfort zone is to embrace the change, think of it as a new adventure. You also aren’t leaving your zone alone, apart from those new friends, your river guides are going to be there to help you along the way, our goal is to make sure you have the most memorable vacation of your life. If you trust us and let us “guide” you, we promise that we will make you feel comfortable in places and ways you never knew you could.
Questions that your river guide will never give you straight answer on:
Q: How deep is the river?
A:It’s deep enough to float on, 25 feet, everywhere!
Q: What type of animals live in the river?
A. Well there are all sorts of creatures in the river, thankfully most of the alligators are only about 12 feet long. The real worry are the 30 foot anacondas.
Q. How old are you?
A. Mentally or physically?
Q. What do those pictographs/petroglyphs mean?
A. That aliens exist and that their teenagers graffitied our rocks!
